Open Clip Art Library Release 0.18 Announcement :: www.openclipart.org
Posted on: 10/17/2005 12:33 PM

October 16, 2005 - Release 0.18 of Open Clip Art Library (http://www.openclipart.org), containing over 6900 SVG files created by over 500 artists, is now available for download and use.

For the month of September, the Open Clip Art Library sought imagery related to pets including images of different breeds appropriate for use by animal shelters.

For the upcoming 0.19 release, due November 1, 2005, the theme is Halloween.

This is any artist's chance to submit to the Open Clip Art Library images of ghosts and goblins, bats, witches, and pumpkins. The community would also welcome printable templates for creating holiday decorations usable in Inkscape, OpenOffice?, Scribus, and, or other graphics applications.

Some of the highlights from this release:

* New top level categories 'science', 'electronics'
* New subsections 'religion', 'astronomy', 'network', and more
* Flags collection has been fleshed out / improved a bit more
* Bunch of new signs/symbols
* Lots of new vehicles, office, sports, music, and toys clipart

A lot of the previously 'unsorted' art is now sorted and moved into other categories, and several duplicates removed. While much more work is required before the collection is perfect, this release refines the collection for easier access.
